I would like to have tap and dies so I can make rods for Yamaha saxes. Currently I have yas-21, yas-23, yts-23 I am overhauling. Does anyone know which dies would be appropriate? Thanks.
You can order them individually.Gordon (NZ) said:You will probably have to buy a set for the whole instrument. Just make them
I agree with Gordon, but that's for me. I think it depends on the situation of the repairer. For some ordering is easier and maybe cheaper, for some making is much easier and cheaper. Depending on how many you need, for what brands and what sizes you need, how easy (and expensive) it is to order, etc.griff136 said:You can order them individually.
Unless the customer is in a "rush", I always order them - I'm lucky I suppose - if what I am after from Yamaha is in stock, it usually takes 1 or 2 days to deliver.

I can probably get a document from the store, but the problem is (afaik) a different store has an exclusive distribution contract with Yamaha.... I'm wondering if that includes woodwind repacement parts. I'll email Yamaha about it!
